Subject: Safe Haven
I dream of a sky so blue
In which I won't drown in clouds of obscurity
Just a wide and open space
Where I can leave behind the inhumanity
To lose myself entirely
In the deep seas of thoughtless tranquility
Just to find my way back home
Away from endless highways of uncertainty

The black curtain of nightfall
Just provides me time to rest my troubled mind
So that when morning awakes
I can see the light for I'm no longer blind
The utopia of inner peace
I keep sacred in this place only I can find
In this safe haven of mine
The gentlest melodies in my soul come defined

I've made peace with my past
Stopped waging all these wars against myself
And began to look ahead
To see a future in which I could find myself...
(oooh aaayyyyy ooooooh)
(oooh aaayyyyy ooooooh)
(oooh aaayyyyy ooooooh)
(ohhh aaayyyyy ooooooh)

I like the simple true to life wisdom, the survivor, and the will to live on, and live well.
It inspires me as like one of those simple songs from childhood taken through life, and always relevant to the real me in its own sweet way.

Most poetry goes way over my head, but you gave me something here, thanks man.

Thanks Doug, Susan.

It's really about letting go. Learning to just be comfortable with yourself so you can accept others in what they are. It's about finding your own place in the world, so to speak.

What is more subtle, is that it's also about spiritual awakening. Not so much a belief of a higher consciousness as one that deals in a higher connection if you will. Maybe part of me didn't enjoy the agnostic uncertainty, and I felt more condemned to atheism than convinced of its truth. Then I discovered pantheism here, and someone explained how buddhism, the one religious philosophy I always appreciated most, was in many ways a pantheist doctrine, and many things began to make sense to me in a new light.

I frankly owe this place a lot, so this place felt like the one where this should be posted.
